Gene: Scp2 (sterol carrier protein 2, liver) Mus musculus
Symbol: Scp2
Name: sterol carrier protein 2, liver
CRRD ID: 11273
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including C-acyltransferase activity; anion binding activity; and lipid transfer activity. Involved in peroxisome organization. Localizes to mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; hair follicle; intestine; liver; and retina layer. Orthologous to human SCP2 (sterol carrier protein 2); PARTICIPATES IN bile acid biosynthetic pathway; cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis pathway; congenital bile acid synthesis defect pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
